Abyssinian Missionary Baptist Church

About the Church

The purpose of our church is to reach out, evangelizing, adding to the church. Our mission is to start right here at Abyssinian and branch out into the community. The church is to worship the Lord, exalt him, and magnify his name to the multitudes. Our purpose also is to be joined in personal relationships with one another and with God. (Ephesians 2:19)

We are to be committed and mature Christians, edifying the Lord, being devoted disciples and servants working for the ministry. We are to equip ourselves so that we may serve in God's ministry.
